This German recipe for corn salad, aka Maissalat,  is so very easy. Colorful and quick, a great addition to a summer buffet or picnic. It's among the best unusual salad recipes because it really is so quick.

I really do love corn and finding corn recipes this easy is great. This salad relies on canned corn ... easy! Although, using frozen or fresh corn would work as well.

German Corn Salad

Looking through old German cookbooks, it is rare to find corn recipes. Check below to find out why. However, it's now quite common to find in newer cookbooks ... as well as in fancy restaurants.

Adding fresh green peppers and bright red tomatoes, and this salad is a feast for the eyes as well. Add to that, the fact that it's healthy, too!

Corn? For the table and not the stable?

It's interesting to note that corn is not a common vegetable in Germany - at least not in years gone by. My parents immigrated to Canada in the early 1950's and the tradition they brought with them was that corn ("mais") was only fit for cattle.

Corn was certainly not for human consumption! It took a while before we started eating it in Canada - it still carried a negative connotation.

Things changed in Germany and now corn is often added to salads. Even in the finest restaurants, I've had canned corn sprinkled on top of their house salads.

To me, this is most unusual and even strange, as it is not even common here in Canada to use canned corn in that way.

Oma Says:

As I travel throughout Germany, I'm always on the look out for new recipes, and, keeping my eyes open for how and where corn is used, is always fun.

Besides its new use as a bio-fuel, where mounds and mounds of it are under tarps, there's lots left to enjoy in salads!
